Default Are banjo bolts needed

Okay so I've tried to look it up but I haven't seen anything talking about if you need banjo bolts or not, the gt2560r I bought came with an fittings will these suffice or should I get some banjo bolts?

:edit: I'm talking about coolant

Think about the purpose you are trying to accomplish. Will a banjo bolt pass oil any better than an AN fitting?

It's still a fluid, right? Other than fitment and hose routing, why would it matter one way or the other? The only thing that matters is the CV of the fitting.
